Abstract

There is increasing research on the integration of ethnic minority youth in Hong Kong, including how they make sense of their identities in relation to their schooling experiences. Drawing on two critical studies with Hong Kong-based ethnic minority youth using 1) cell phone video production and 2) interviews with photo-elicitation we highlight the ways in which researchers’ positionalities have implications on the ways in which they (re)present their findings. Using the axes of insider and outsider, we offer a nuanced account of the ways in which researchers working with ethnic minority youth in Hong Kong understand and analyze research data through specific cultural, racialized and contextual lenses.
